Let's see. Depramil is a trade name for the antidepressant Citalopram. Lamotrigine is an anticonvulsant drug used to treat epilepsy, and also to help control mood swings in Bipolar Disorder. Espiride is a trade-name for Sulpiride, a somewhat peculiar drug, deeply loved by some SA doctors, for reasons I don't understand, but originally an antipsychotic drug.
You havn't mentioned what sort of doctor is treating you : if the diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder has been made, this should usually be confirmed by a specialist psychiatrist using internationally agreed criteria. This could explain two of the puzzling drug being used, that generally those are best prescribed in general practice, on the recommendation of a psychiatrist.
It is absolutely routine for psychiatrists, who know these drugs well, that one should NOT abruptly stop them ( but rather reduce the doses gradually ) because otherwise withdrawal effects, potentially severe, are likely, and these include dizziness such as you experienced. When you say you were "weaned off" the Depramil I wonder whether this was done optimally.
What also worries me is that you seem to be making your own decisions about starting and stopping and mixing. You need to discuss such decisions with your doctor, and maybe consider getting a second opinion.
